Bort Meadow Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"It’s hard to imagine that a place so wild and so rugged exists so close to the hustle and bustle of downtown Oakland. But Bort Meadow is a magical place where you can pretend you’re a Wild West settler seeking fame and fortune. This hike features a lush grassland ringed by redwoods and eucalyptus, where you’re bound to see an abundance of wildlife, including quail, bobcat, deer, coyote, and a number of raptors circling above. This hike can get very hot in the summer, so it’s best to stick to visits from September through June. In spring, you’ll have the chance to walk through an expanse of wildflowers."
